A beautiful mix - the laid-back amicable nature of the Dutch staff, mixed with the attention to detail and downright efficiency of this Japanese hotel chain. The breakfast was excellent, the spa was delightful (although some facilities were unavailable due to refurbishment) and the room was very good. Customer services were very friendly and attentive, and the restaurants were absolutely wonderful. What a great stay.

Room Tip: Executive rooms come with access to the spa, lounge and breakfast. Well worth paying the extra if yo...

Amazing service as soon as they took our luggage and opened our doors to the taxi!

Easy check in with all you need info for its facilities and near by attractions

Great room with a view over the city. Most comfortable bed on our stay. Amazing bath and shower where you can watch tv to.

Room service felt like royalty. 24 hour service and hot food on a table is brought to you and cleared at your request

Staff are absolutely top service!

Can't comment on the pool as was out of service

Great location to rent bikes from the hotel also to get everywhere you need

You do need to lay for a lot of extra things however it's a five star so what can you expect

I wish I had tipped for service as in a rush I had forgotten and feel really bad

We ended up booking our trip last minute which was great they could fit us in. We also cancelled at our other B&B for the last few nights to keep it cheap however we wanted to stay in this hotel as it was too good to be true
Thank you for an amazing stay in Amsterdam

Having just spent a week in Tokyo, there was a sense of 'been there done that' when checking into the Okura and having dinner at the restaurant. However almost every part of my stay was outstanding, from the delightful staff (perhaps something to do with the Dutch still being in the WC), to the food at the restaurant.
The only negative is that many of my other stays at other hotels will be judged by this visit. If you are in Amsterdam, please visit the Japanese restaurant you will not be disappointed. The rooms are smart, and staff are polite and very helpful. Its a rare event when you have nothing to complain about!

Excellent, and look forward to going back!

This hotel is definitely deserving of its five star rating. The only drawback is it is about a 20 minute walk to city center. Our room on the 15th floor gave us a Birdseye view of Amsterdam. Situated on a canalin s'more residential area it allows you to observe the locals.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We had 2 side by side rooms that were very large. King size bed in 1 room and 2 full sized beds in the other. Very comfortable and nicely appointed bathrooms with 2 free standing sinks, full sized tub with tv and separate shower.

Amsterdam is a very crowded city, and this hotel is away from the tourist section. The area is nice and quiet, a wonderful oasis after a long day of museum visits. The tram is right outside the hotel and the concierge can sell you tickets...convenient! The neighbor has nice restaurants nearby.

Two things that were not customer friendly...when checking in the front desk advised our total cost and stated Euros. We paid with our credit card assuming that it would be billed in Euros since that is what was stated to us at check in. We were not asked if we wanted to be billed in dollars or Euros, and after returning home our bill was in dollars and charged a fee. We did not bill anything in dollars on our trip....pulling out receipt....after trip....in tiny print from Hotel Okura said we had choice but is now charged in dollars and can't be changed. We were not informed at the front desk. This was the only fee we were charged during our entire vacation.

The hotel also put a hold on our credit card for the full amount of stay, not just a small amount for any incidentals. Imagine our surprise at the end of a 3 week trip, when trying to make a purchase, the hotel still had a hold on the full amount of the money. Now we needed to call the front desk, and they immediately released the hold, BUT this is not professional service. Very disappointing.
